Jet Service Pack 8.0 problems.

Hi,
Recently we have deployed Jet Service Pack 8.0 for our applications, until then we used to run Jet service Pack 6.0 and the applications were running fine. After we installed service Pack 8.0 some of our access queries hangs permanently. These are insert queries (join to multiple tables in SYBASE database and insert into a temporary table in MS Access), and when I run these queries Access simply hangs, I searched searched and finally reverted back to the Older versions (of jet service pack 6.0)  of DAO360.DLL and MSJET40.dll, then the queries started running fine again.

I didn't revert other DLLs installed by service back 8.0, My question is why does it happen with this new service pack 8.0 ??
Is there any patch to this patch ??

As part of the policy we need to go to service pack 8.0 sooner or later so I only got the temporary solution to get the applications working by copying the older versions of the DLLs.(of service pack 6.0)

I need to know any permanent fix so that I can use Jet service Pack 8.0 without any issues.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You.

Praveen.

you might try installing the latest mdac (2.7 i think) as well as jet 8 on a test machine...see if that helps

Sounds like this is one for Microsoft.  I know there is a security bulletin that came out after sp8 (April I think).  Not sure what impact it will have on your problem.  You may want to try the security bulletin update and see if that fixes the haning query.

Better rewrite your queries in ado.

Works better and faster than DAO...

and install MDac 2.7 too...

Actually, I just did some testing the other day and and opening a saved query via code in DAO vs ADO is almost twice as fast.  

if you are within the MDB I always recommend DAO.
